Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Few storybooks have been more brilliantly brought to life, page for page, chapter for chapter, derring-do for derring-do. – Frank S. Nugent, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If prankish Fairbanks was a man's Robin Hood, handsome, romantic Flynn performs for everybody else. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It is cinematic pageantry at its best, a highly imaginative telling of folklore in all the hues of Technicolor. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Movie pageantry at its best, done in the grand manner of silent spectacles, brimming over with the sort of primitive energy that drew people to the movies in the first place. – Elliott Stein, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Absolutely the best Robin Hood of all time!

I believe I have seen every Robin Hood ever made and it is my humble opinion that this is the best one. Errol Flynn is completely superb as is Olivia de Havilland. I would definitely suggest that people buy this movie.


This movie is the best Robin Hood you'll ever see. The surprising thing is that it is very funny and it is well balanced. Errol Flynn is absolutely awesome, Olivia de Haviland is stunning, and Basil Rathbone is simply one of the best villains you'll ever see. Even though the movie is 70 years old, it still looks awesome thanks to today's restoration technologies.

One of the best Robin Hoods of all time!

This version of Robin Hood, though slightly campy, is one of the most heartwarming versions to watch. Errol Flynn is as dashing as ever, and Olivia de Havilland is absolutely beautiful. It also has the added bonus of being the movie that the Disney classic is based off of, so if you love that film it's a sure bet that you'll love this!
